South Carolina Lawyer Dirk Derrick helps victims recover from car accidents, personal injury & wrongful death.

On July 4th, our car accident client and his family were traveling west on 21st Avenue North in Myrtle Beach, SC. The driver in front of our client suddenly came to a stop due to heavy traffic conditions, and our client slowed down accordingly. The vehicle behind our client was traveling too fast for conditions and slammed into the back of his car, which pushed our client into the first car, resulting in a three-car collision. 

When our client arrived at Conway Medical Center in Conway, South Carolina, he informed the doctors that he was experiencing severe neck and back pain as well as some stiffness between his shoulder blades. The doctors conducted x-rays and discharged the client with prescribed medicine for his pain. 

Our client followed up with an orthopedist due to the constant aching pain in his neck and back. He also informed the doctor he was experiencing numbness and tingling in his right arm. The orthopedic doctor then ordered an x-ray and MRI of the cervical spine. The MRI revealed central stenosis at C5-C6 and a herniated disc at C6-C7. Our client followed a strict regime of home exercise, physical therapy, and cervical epidural injections for several weeks to heal his injuries. 

Myrtle Beach injury lawyers at The Derrick Law Firm work hard to give their clients the best results for their case. Our team closely evaluated our client’s medical records, bills, if any future treatment was needed as well as his pain and suffering before demanding the full policy limits of all available insurance coverage. 

Our car accident client settled his case for $100,000 and gave The Derrick Law Firm a 5-star testimonial saying, “Took care of us from day.”
